Rust O Leum Brake Caliper Paint

I'm looking into painting my brake calipers red. I saw this paint at walmart, says it withstands up to 900 degrees fahrenheit. Its only $6.50. Have any of you tried this paint before and if you have how was it?

Duplicolor is what I have used for all my calipers and works great. Rustoleum is a good paint. I'm using it for my interior trim and Im glad I did

Thanks for the input guys, I ended up buying the rustoleum red caliper paint, now I just have to wait for a nice weekend to do them. Should I use a certain type of primer before I do this? What kind of prep work is needed
